Voted in at #2 on Resident Advisor's 2016 Top 100 DJ Poll, industry leader Jackmaster will be joining festival-goers for what is stacking up to be an unforgettable New Years Day celebration.
Known for his wide-ranging taste and ability to surprise, there is little use arriving to a Jackmaster set thinking you know what to expect, just have faith that he will deliver – and he always does. It’s also worth noting that Jackmaster is one of a handful of DJs on the international scene that has remained at the top without the need to produce or remix. He purely relies almost exclusively on his innate skills and talent on the decks to thrive and prosper.
To help with preparation in the months leading up to Let Them Eat Cake, a little listening material is essential! Jackmaster recently posted a rare recording of his live set from the Terrace at the Circoloco opening party for your listening pleasure.
The mix features a range of genres that including house, techno, and even a little disco.
The first round lineup for Let Them Eat Cake 2018 has been revealed.
Punters will be spoilt for choice with an array of world leaders in electronic music, many of who feature in Resident Advisor's Top 100 DJs poll as well as the Top 40 live acts from 2016.
Two from RA’s top ten live acts will be performing at Let Them Eat Cake, as well as the #2 voted DJ, and another three who placed throughout the top 100. In addition to the host of international artists, punters will also get to enjoy a sprinkling of Australian talent.
Music selection will range from house, techno and live performance, spread across four stages throughout Werribee Park.
As a whole, the first round release has made for possibly the strongest Let Them Eat Cake lineup yet...

Stephan Bodzin’s ethereal and transportive remix of ‘Monument’ by Tale Of Us & Vaal has been released on Afterlife Records.
The remix spans across seven and a half minutes of pure bliss, and is the first production Bodzin has posted on his Soundcloud page in over a year. It comes after Stephan’s stand-out performances at recent Afterlife events where he won a firm position in the hearts of many.
The remix was accompanied with two others, one from Cologne-based Barnt and the other from Swiss-based duo Adriatique (who made that stellar remix of Bodzin’s ‘Atlas’).
No doubt the great man is currently switching himself into a higher gear ahead of his performance at Let Them Eat Cake...

There are few who bring energy to DJ sets quite like Palms Trax. His lively style and vibing sound is truly contagious, and after being voted in at #48 on Resident Advisors Top 100 DJ Poll last year, the global respect for Palms is absolute.
As a part of Rinse FM’s 12hr Dekmantel Takeover, Palms recorded an hour of house music gold for your listening pleasure.
As we prepare to venture on to the lush lands of Werribee Park for the sixth instalment of Let Them Eat Cake, remind yourself of what it was like to forget about the real world for a moment in time by gazing through the colourful catalogue of photos from last year's sold out event..
Representing Melbourne at Let Them Eat Cake will be cousins Simon Lam and Chlo Kaul aka Kllo.
The duo, who are often on the receiving end of some well deserved hype after each release, have seen plenty of success in recent years. Their first single ‘Make Me Wonder’ (which started everything when it was picked up by BBC Radio 1), really got things moving for the duo. The follow up single ‘False Calls’ was premiered on Triple J’s 2014 (with Richard Kingsmill), then fast forward a little to their 2016 single ‘Boldie’, and watch it go on to clock well over one million plays Spotify plays.
Leading up into the Australian summer, Kllo have been busy drip feeding music from their upcoming debut album ‘Backwater’ with tracks ‘Nylon’, the downtempo ‘Downfall’ and 'Virtue'… The latter being accompanied by a stellar music video.
Watch the video to ‘Virtue’, and keep a keen eye out for Kllo’s debut album ‘Backwater’, which is to be released October 20.
